In Their Words: “I loved recording this album, especially this song as it really brought the Christmas spirit and turned it up. It really puts a smile on my face and makes me think of all the unique things that make Christmas special to me. Great lyrics by the legend that is Stevie Wonder. What a fun song to have amongst the wonder and magic of this album. The video was great fun, more so because my baby girl and boy were right there with me. What a delight! And how festive. Can’t believe how lucky I am at this time in my life.
“I have thought about making a Christmas album for years, I am Christmas obsessed! Making this record has honestly been a dream come true. It’s been years and years playing in my head and now finally I get to hear it in reality. It seems to be very true that good things come to those who wait. All the Christmas stars have aligned and put me in the right place at the right time with the right team of people to make this music shine magic in every direction. I just hope people enjoy hearing it as much as I have making it.” — Joss Stone
